Pingu’s English Indonesia opens new school in Batam

Latest News

Pingu’s English Indonesia have today announced the opening of the latest Pingu’s English school in the country, with the launch of Pingu’s English Batam.


Batam is the largest Indonesian city in the province of Riau Islands, with a population of just under 1.5 million. Batam is an industrial boomtown with an emerging transport hub. With a rapidly increasing population in Batam, many with young families, the need for a better education system is growing. And with this, comes an increased demand from parents for a quality international pre-school program like Pingu’s English, to help their children develop proficiency in the English language.


Pingu’s English Batam grand opening

Pingu’s English Batam is owned and managed by Ms Lian Winata, who has already seen many children enrol since the launch in early November. The grand opening of Pingu’s English Batam will take place at the school on the 5th January 2020. Parents who enrol on the day will receive a 50% discount, as well as gifts for children and parents alike!pingusenglish_indonesia

Pingu’s English is a four-level pre-school English language training program for 3-9 year olds, which has moved away from traditional models of learning. Instead, the classes are lively, engaging and interactive – following a strong play-based methodology. They include everything from games and crafts to stories and songs. Pingu’s English is not just fun though – it has strong learning outcomes, and a focus on building confidence in reading, writing, speaking and understanding in English. And all in a safe and secure learning environment.

Pingu’s English Indonesia already has a strong tradition of delivering Pingu’s English within the country, with exciting plans for the year ahead. As well as this launch, Pingu’s English Indonesia is now also offering Pingu’s English’s full-time kindergarten program to Indonesian parents, and plans to open other Pingu’s English schools and kindergartens nationwide too.

Pingu’s English is the global pre-school franchise from the UK which has seen significant growth across ASEAN in recent years with over 36 Pingu’s English schools already present across the region, and more launching in the year ahead. Pingu’s English is owned by the Linguaphone Group from the UK which has over 115 years of experience in the language training market.

We at the British Chamber of Commerce worked with Linguaphone Group to find them a new in-market partner for the Korean market. Throughout the engagement we had with Linguaphone Group, we found them to be passionate about education, supremely professional in their approach to business and both responsive and personable in their interactions with ourselves and Korean partners. Korean investors were attracted to the best-in-class program which Linguaphone Group offers, the strong reputation of the company and the heritage with which it is associated. These are qualities that resonate globally.

Our Experience with Pingu’s English has been profitable and positive from the first year. We relied on their professionalism and heritage, their staff is always prompt to assist with the latest trends and ideas on the market. We were looking for a brand who can guarantee us quality and a solid method but at the same time would leave us the freedom and flexibility in order to succeed in our challenging and competitive market like the Italian one. We built Pingu’s English project in Italy by mixing their huge international experience in the English training with our knowledge of the Italian market. All this enabled us to do the right decision for our winning investment. Today we have over 40 Pingu’s English centres and thousands of happy children learning English.

I knew about Pingu’s English School through a friend. After research about the school, I decided to enroll my daughter and it was one of the best things I could do to her. She loves studying at Pingu’s English and she cannot wait to the day of the class. I also love Pingu's English School, because there she learns by playing and I can see her progress day by day.

Regarding the teaching method they use a figurative storytelling way of starting the lesson,  trying hard to involve the child and make the them curious about the situation. Tom is very happy to go to Pingu’s English because he perceives the School as a playful moment and not just as a learning moment while at the same time he is learning a new language


Pingu's English Student's Mother /Italy
